Munsters Junior / U23 & Juvenile Events and Borrisoleigh Mile Event
As summer finally arrived this week the athletes at the Munster Junior / U23 & Juvenile combined events basked in 20 deg of sunshine in Templemore on Saturday. We didn’t have big numbers competing as some did the varsities a week earlier and the younger athletes have the first Schools comp on Wednesday. So it was quality rather than quantity and we had a number of stars on the day.
In the Juvenile combined competition Alex Reynolds had a comprehensive win in the U 15 pentathlon.
Jumping 1.52 in the high jump and running 2.28 in the 800m shows his versatility in this event.
His team mate Ben Connolly had a good competition to claim the silver medal in the same competition.
The Irish international Joe McEvoy had a superb High Jump competition to finally get over 2m for the first
time in the U18 event. This should give him the confidence to go even higher later in the year.
Another International and winner of Ireland’s fittest family Ciara Cummins followed up her fine bronze medal
performance in the Irish University’s last week with a gold medal performance in the U23 800m in 2m.18s.
Also we had Aaron Quigley win his first munster title in the U23 5000m in a championship best time of 16.37.
Great to see this hard working athlete getting his Just awards.
Last but not least was Brian Naughton who got his outdoor season off to a good start with a bronze medal in the Junior hammer with a throw of 41m. With the schools just a matter of weeks away the season is already showing great promise.
A group of Athletes attended the Borrisoleigh track attack road mile . With Tom 1st Aaron 3rd , Seamus 4th, Cian 1st U18, Tom 2nd U18 , Ailbhe 1st U18 & Sarah 2nd U18 out of over 700 taking part they can be
well pleased with themselves.

Irish University Championships
This weekend saw the start of the outdoor season with the Irish University championships being held in the The Mary Peters track in Belfast. We had six athletes taking part and Aoife Delargy got us off to a great start when finishing a very close second in the 800m in 2.19. Aoife continues to deliver at this level and we look forward to the rest of her season with great anticipation.
Paul White UL went into these championships a little unsure of his form after a recent injury but acquitted himself well with a fine 3rd place finish in the 400m in 48.4s. This will get him back on track and he can look forward with confidence to the rest of the season. He also helped UL to the silver medals in the 4x400 relay.
These championships saw a welcome return to form at this level for Ciara Cummins , DCU , when finishing 3rd in the 3000m steeplechase. Great to see her back on the podium.
One of our National senior 4x100 relay winning team Oisín Fitzpatrick ran a brilliant third leg for Carlow IT and they came home with the silver medals.
Tom Hennessey running outdoors for the first time in 18 months had a busy weekend when finishing 5th in the 800m and then helped UL to second place in the 4x400m on a team which included his club mate Paul White. He will be a little disappointed with his 800m result but I’m sure he can put this behind him very quickly and look forward to the rest of the outdoor season.
Margaret Mary Grace reached the final of the 400m representing Waterford IT and finished 7th in 62.2s. Well done Margaret Mary.
A lot of these athletes will be out again next weekend when the junior and U23 championships are being held in Templemore.
Saturday saw the last day of the All Ireland juvenile championships in Athlone with relay and field event finals.
We had a dismal display in the relays in witch our U13 boys were our only relay finalists. Indeed the team of Ben Walshe, Ronan Cunneen, Matthew Sage and Sam Cusack put up a very fine display to finish fifth in their final.
Our field eventers came to the rescue on the day with first Jodie McGrath finishing second in the U15 girls pole vault and soon after Seán Carolan also finishing second in the U18 shot putt.
This is Jodie’s first individual All Ireland medal so well done Jodie and hopefully the first of many.
Seán had a magnificent Pb of 14.47 in the U18 boys shot putt to complete a Tipp 1-2 with Jack Ryan of Moycarkey.
So after a good indoor campaign over the four weekends it’s on to the outdoor campaign with the county post primary schools and Munster junior & U23 both in Templemore later this month.
The National Throws took place in Templemore last Sunday .Nenagh were the Top club on the day coming away with 6 medsls .
